Why the EU sucks...continued

An excellent piece in The Times today on why and how European politics harms extremely poor people in Africa and completely undermines the holier-than-thou position on aid:

Every year a bureaucrat in Brussels sets the price of sugar for European farmers — at four times the market price. No wonder they produce five million tonnes too much of it, preventing other sugar-growing countries from competing.
Put this another way: for every £3 the EU gives to Mozambique in aid, it takes back £1 in the damage it does to its sugar industry. The women whom Mr Brown met do not want aid. They want their business to thrive.

The EU is just another example of mismanagement and is really just a feeding frenzy of corrupt politicians. Britain isnt Europe and we should stay out before they ruin us. All our trouble has come from Europe with the exception of George Washington and Japan. Sooner out the better.

Rob ''englander'' you are completely right!!
The EU is becoming a (fascist) superstate, I could use many words to describe the EU but i'll refrain from doing so. They will strip us of all our national traditions or at least the things that actually make England, England, the British, and they believe no religion is the way forward, for I know they will probably force there own money corrupt religion on us, I could rant on for months but what I really wanted to say was.....................exactly what rob said; thankyou,.......but what we really need is to as a nation rise up and tell our governement where to stick the damn EU. Still these are just my tyhoughts, I would hope many others think the same.
p.s. the heads of the EU cannot be voted out, so we know what their gonna be like, corrupt business people just wanting to get rich at the cost of millions of peoples heritage and societies.
(the right to rant will probably be taken from us, ha)
